“My evenings are taken up very largely with astrology. I make horoscopic calculations in order to find a clue to the core of psychological truth. Some remarkable things have turned up which will certainly appear incredible to you.”

~Carl Jung in a letter to Sigmund Freud (June 12, 1911)


Astrological Counseling

I offer astrological counseling for psycho-spiritual exploration, understanding, and transformation. Astrology utilized in this way can be a missing key for deep inner work and can shed light on the path towards greater harmony with the natural rhythms and cycles of one’s life journey. My approach to astrology is to share the potentials and opportunities I see while exploring how the symbols and archetypes are manifesting uniquely for each individual. Astrology is a wonderful tool for self-knowledge and a help in times of challenge or transition. It can facilitate tremendous insight and peace, as well as provide timelines for certain archetypal or energetic influences reflected in our lives and inner states of being. Consultations available for birth chart exploration, current influences, relationship dynamics, and timing for important events.

An upcoming Solar Eclipse and the preceding Balsamic Moon



There is a New Moon Solar Eclipse on 11/25 (1:10am EST). The last few days before a New Moon (the Balsamic phase) is a quiet and introspective period. Psychologically, it is a time of endings. The urge to withdraw from usual activities to be inward and reflective is typical for many. Once the New Moon phase begins, however, it marks the start of a new lunar cycle — and this one is powerfully charged because of the eclipse. New energy and change are imminent, but how and where depends on the ways in which your individual chart is aspected by this eclipse (for instance, which house the eclipse falls in and if it conjoins or opposes any of your planets or points). The eclipse is at 3º Sagittarius ♐...
